Jennie Lee: How To Find Your Way When You Are Feeling Lost or Stuck

Season 1, Ep. 18

Welcome to Yoga Unplugged Conversations

A podcast dedicated to helping you grow, thrive and gracefully make tough life decisions, so you can lead a happier, healthier life.

Host Sarah Burchard invites special guests on the show to deep dive into real life issues, providing tools and philosophies to help you navigate them with greater ease.

Sarah is a yogi, freelance writer, natural foods chef and certified health coach passionate about self-development, yoga and promoting local businesses and food through her writing, farmers market tours and farm-to-table events under the name, The Healthy Locavore.


In today’s episode I’m talking to Jennie Lee.

Jennie is a Yoga therapist, author and an expert on spiritual living.

As a yoga therapist she helps her clients develop practices that integrate mind, body and soul. Her writing is featured regularly in national magazines such as Light of Consciousness and Yoga Therapy Today, and online at Yogapedia, Yoga Digest, mindbodygreen, and many more. 

She has also taught yoga and meditation for more than 20 years.

Today Jennie and I are discussing how to find your way when you are feeling lost or stuck. Her new book, Spark Change: 108 Provocative Questions for Spiritual Evolution, teaches us how.  

We talk about…

●      How she became a yoga therapist

●      Why she believes that the ability to solve a problem lies in the questions you ask

●      The basic requirements one needs in order to change

●      What to do if you have the questions, but don’t know the answers

●      The question she continues to ask herself everyday

If you have found yourself on a path you didn’t intend to be on or feel incapable of making your next move forward this episode is for you. 

Asking yourself the right questions facilitates change in a conscious, productive way, so that you can grow in alignment with who you really are and what you really want.

Brenda Kwon: Part 2: Learning How To Love with Bhakti Yoga

Season 1, Ep. 15
Welcome to Yoga Unplugged ConversationsA podcast dedicated to helping you grow, thrive and gracefully make tough life decisions, so you can lead a happier, healthier life.Yoga Unplugged Team member Sarah Burchard is your host.

When she is not talking food she's marketing events for Yoga Unplugged and supporting the yoga community on Oʻahu.In todayʻs episode Iʻm back with award-winning writer, literature professor and yoga teacher Brenda Kwon. See her full bio and part 1 of this episode here.Today Brenda and I are continuing our discussion on Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of love and devotion.I was inspired to record a part 2 of this episode after reading a book by Bell Hooks called “All About Love.” This book opened my eyes to some of the patterns I had unconsciously formed around love and gave me a new perspective of what it means to love someone.We talk about…●If love can or should be defined●What happens if you can never learn to love yourself●Having a partner as a luxury versus a need●How our relationships mirror patterns formed from childhood●Why breaking up is often an act of loveI think we can all agree that love is hugely important in all of our lives. It has the ability to bring us joy and give meaning to life. It is the solution to conflict and the opposite of fear.But love gets tricky when you look for it outside yourself. Some spend years, or their whole life, looking for it, only to feel let down time and time again. Our discussion today will draw from the ideas in“All About Love,”as well as a couple other books, and look at them from the perspective of Bhakti Yoga.-Follow Brenda Kwon:WebsiteInstagramFacebookLive Zoom classesAll About Love by Bell HooksThe Power of Love by Osho
